Poured a yellow straw color from a blue glass bottle (only reason I gave it a 2 for appearance). This beer really didnít taste too different from any of the other pale lagers from the big boys. It is kind of expensive for what it is. It poured with also no head and had very little aroma. I suppose this could be refreshing if served as cold as an iceberg on a hot day.

2014-08-15. Crisp pale yellow body with a small white head fades. Aroma is sweet, with an earthy mushroom like character. Flavour is sweetish, simple pale malt. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Pretty dull, but not terrible. Interesting to try. Bottle from NFLD via my parents

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle, shared by jercraigs CGBD 2014. Pretty well up there (or should I say down there?) with the worst of the macro Pale Lagers out there. Poured a pale light straw body with a minimal fizzy white head. Nose is cardboard, corn, straw, and maybe a touch of pale malt. The flavor is much the same, what little of it there is. Not convinced this is old, I just think the cardboard flavor is the natural taste of this. Light bodied and fizzy with a watery finish. Another awful Pale Lager, but it is a Province tick.

Very disappointing. I was excited to try a Newfoundland brewery, but got carbonated water. It was more of a palate cleanser at the beer fest I went to. Cool idea to use glacial water, but they forgot the other ingredients.

Bottled sample from friend in Newfoundland. Very light tasting. Like a lite beer. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In bottle and on tap ... no aroma, a little crisp. Very easy drinking as a session beer but nothing special at all

Extremely light beer, not a load of aroma. Refreshing though, and the blue bottle somehow makes it better. No off-aromas or off-tastes, so I would suggest this over many macro-lagers.

Bottle, shared with Parksy at 5am during the Canada vs. Sweden gold medal hockey game. Light yellow with an average white head, no lace. Light apple esters, thin grains, (rice?) watery.

Bottle thanks to Paul (sorta thanks). First off donít drink this after having ingested the juicy remains of pickled eggs...sorta destroys the palate...although truth be told it wouldnít have mattered anyways and may have helped. Slightly hazy pale yellow with an off white head. Capable lager aroma with some stale caramel, a bit too sweet at the start and become almost cloying (for a lager) on the finish. Was hoping to have a crisp, clean delicious 10000 yr old beer but this was not it...o well. Novelty was interesting though...if you ignore the environmental impact.

Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. Just about the palest pale lager I've ever tried. Hardly any colour, aroma or taste, but it oddly works. Reminds me of putting snow in my mouth and letting it melt. I can see why people who favour strong stouts or IPAs would have no use for this beer, but it is bizarrely refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
